Wellington region maintenance programme

Information about roadworks in the Wellington and Kāpiti regions

Well-maintained roads are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we do this important work.

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. If you’re driving around the Wellington region, roadworks on the state highway network may affect your travel plans.

Below is a quick outline of the major works planned for Sunday  22 October - Saturday 28 October 2017. We’ll keep you posted on future works and have regular updates on local radio stations.

NOTE: Roadworks are dependent on weather and other factors. If bad weather should strike, work will be postponed to the next suitable day or night.
